NO! Not at all.

My understanding of the law (and how it was explained to me) is having any type of scanner in your vehicle while in New York State is against the law.

All that is stated about having an Amateur Radio License is that you may have a radio that can receive "out of band". Amateur Radio bands are just below the VHF Public safety band, and are also just below the UHF Public Safety spectrum. The law states that you can have a radio in your car that can receive above and below the amateur spectrum - but it must be the radio you USE for amateur radio. So - having a scanner in your vehicle is not the same as having your Amateur Radio in the vehicle.

Again, the reasoning is simple -most Amateur Radio's can be set to receive into the public service bands.

After reading my explination, please re-read this section of the law:

"...who operates a duly licensed portable mobile transmitter and in connection therewith a receiver or receiving set on frequencies exclusively allocated by the federal communications commission to duly licensed radio amateurs."
